What a relaxing last few days. I (mostly) had two days off back to back and coincidentally, so did Chuck.
Yesterday for Happy Hour We met some friends at Anthony's for a drink and had some good laughs. We spent the afternoon watching boat
traffic go by talking about the weather. Anthony's is the place to
spend time quietly relaxing by yourself or with friends, especially when
you are into boats. The constant stream of traffic entering and
exiting the locks would keep your average person entertained, then add
all the other traffic streaming by not headed to the locks. During the
summer it becomes every boaters version of "People Watching". Large
tugs, fishing boats and barges. Small, medium and large boats of every
type. Chaotic, colorful and endless hours of entertainment served with
with a decent selection of Draft Beer which is Chuck's requirement of a
favorite haunt and reasonable tasting coffee which is mine. Not always
easy to find both in the same place. Certainly when followed up by the
hope of good food at a reasonable price. BBQ Oysters on the half shell
for .50 cents, Ahi Nacho's for $5.00. Swimmers and Sliders in between at
$3.00. Its become our favorite spot with the additional benefit of
being within easy walking distance of the marina.
Chuck was off to work early today so I have some rare time to type away. Hot coffee in hand with Bree snuggled as close as she can without
being obviously annoying and listening to some great Hawaiian music.
(Hapa). Almost starting to feel like another day off but not quite.
Fuel tank comes in today so we can get started on that in the next few days or so.
